For this weekend since I have been left at home and unsupervised, I am going through 20 MCU movies in the MCU’s chronological order, starting from Captain America: The First Avenger through to Ant-Man & The Wasp.
Back on Earth this time Steve has been catching up on all the things he missed out on during his 70 year snooze. It is also a time for him to come to grips with the modern world in all its subtleties in its threats and its stretched moral inconsistencies.
But during his morning laps Captain America is called upon to assist in retaking one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s ship back from pirates, but whilst Cap is doing that Romanov is off doing a seperate mission for Fury. Which I guess you could say upsets him and he confronts Fury about it. After saying he didn’t think that Cap would be comfortable doing that particular role, so he got Romanov to do it instead of him.
When Fury turns up injured in Steve’s apartment he tells Rogers that S.H.I.E.L.D. has become infested by its enemies, and that he should not lightly trust anyone working for it. Moments later Fury is shot dead. When Steve does this though he is outed as a traitor to the cause and is forced to fight his way out of the facility. Now he is stuck trying to get to the bottom of this deadly mystery, but he isn’t alone in doing so. Black Widow, and his latest friend The Falcon.
But when it comes to the crunch the fight of his life will be a costly one, and worst of all, his enemy is very well known to him, as the Winter Soldier looks so familiar.
This is quite possibly my favourite of the 3 Captain America movies (with Civil War as a very close third. It just flows so well throughout it. The storyline gives detail and helps to flesh out some more of the overriding story of Steve’s side of everything.
Oh, and if you wondering this is only 9 movies into the 20 I have lined up. I’m running behind on my timeline here……
